Share |

The Historical Ethnomusicology Section of the Society for Ethnomusicology is pleased to announce the 2017 Student Paper Prize in Historical Ethnomusicology. This is a new prize that was created to recognize the best paper by a graduate or undergraduate student presented at the Society’s 2017 annual conference that bridges the disciplines of historical musicology and ethnomusicology in a creative and insightful way. Such papers should engage with music and culture in any historical period, but otherwise there are no restrictions as to subject matter or musical genre.

Purpose: To recognize the best student paper that engages with historical research in ethnomusicology, presented at the annual meeting of the Society for Ethnomusicology.

Prize: The Historical Ethnomusicology Section Student Paper Prize comes with a cash award of $200.

Eligibility: The prize is open to any person presenting a paper at the annual conference of the Society for Ethnomusicology who is a student at the time the paper is presented. This includes undergraduates, Master’s students, Ph.D. students and candidates, but does not include Post-docs, unless they are in another degree program at the time.

Administration: A prize committee consisting of the Section’s Secretary/Treasurer, the previous year’s prize winner, and one other Section member who may not be a current student, will review the submissions and select a winner to be announced at the following year’s conference.

Regularity: Annually, although the prize committee reserves the right to withhold the awarding of the prize if there are not a sufficient number or quality of entries.

Submission Process and Deadline for Submission: Send a copy of your paper in PDF format, and any supplemental materials (photos, maps, musical examples, etc.) to the chair of the Historical Ethnomusicology section, James Revell Carr, at revell.carr@uky.edu, no later than December 1st. Please do not send your presentation in Power Point, Prezi, Keynote or any other multi-media format.

Please direct any questions about the competition to Revell Carr at revell.carr@uky.edu.
